There are a few reasons for this:

  • The bill got created before the landed cost account set up.
  • The shipping and handling items need to map to the landed cost account.
  • Another user is working on the shipping and handling bill.
  • The landed cost is allocated to another inventory and assembly item bill.

You’re unable to remove an item that’s mapped to a landed cost account. If you need to remove it, you’ll need to make it inactive.

To do this:

  1. Select Lists.
  2. Select Item list, then select the item.
  3. Select Item is inactive.
  4. Select Make Inactive, then select OK.

Yes, you can. The landed cost calculation will show all the bills as part of shipping and handling bills. We recommend following the enhanced inventory receiving workflow to correctly calculate the landed cost.
